sadly I am not competent to do the sort of work required.
I had the main strip down and welding work done at a local firm who specialise in VW's called Kent Volkswagen They restore Karman Ghias so the body set up was not totally alien. Personally I thought that they did a fantastic job although the remit from me was not to do it in a rush which meant that hours wise they put in a lot, but they gave me a cracking hourly rate (in actual fact I simply paid the wages of the welder over the course of a period of time)
Now the 'important' stuff like finishing off, spray job and putting back together is being done at the Jaymic workshop. Who, I am pleased to say, agreed that most of the work from Kent VW was good but understandably there were a few areas not quite right as they didnt know the intricacies of the e9 so they had to do a little bit of re-work. Now they are at the stage where it could be painted in the coming month (subject to cash...!!!)
